Allure Beauty Box June 2016 *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

I'll definitely use the mask. I'm curious about the shampoo since I love the smell of mangoes. I never try to match my shampoo with my conditioner, so it doesn't bother me that there is just the one. Plus it looks like a decent size, usually the bottles are so small it's not enough for my hair. I'll try the bronzer even though I'm not a fan of the brand. I like the small sunscreens to put in a purse and use as hand lotion. I'm bit overwhelmed with eye serum right now, we'll see what color nail polish I get. It's an okay box for me.

And the saga continues..

I emailed to make sure I was still getting a box since my account was labelled as inactive despite the assurances that my husband's 6 month gift sub was still active.

got the response:
"Dear Subscriber:

Thank you for contacting Allure Beauty Box.

Our records show that your account is not active.  Your automatic shipments were cancelled on May 14, 2016.  Since you are wanting the June box, we have activated your account again.  If there is no problem with your credit card being processed, then you should get the June box.  Once your box has been confirmed shipped, you will get an email confirmation which will include your tracking information."

 

Insert ALL the :headdesk emojis in the world here.
 

I called and got a helpful rep who verified with a supervisor that my card WAS NOT being charged and that my June box was being sent, but they were running late due to the holiday delaying shipments.
 

So we'll see, I guess?

You know, I think they are trying to handle this like print media subscriptions, and no wonder that is a dying medium given how media giants like Conde Nast are handling this...people are a little less crabby about getting shorted a $2-3 magazine because the subscriptions didn't activate/deactivate on a sane schedule, but with a $16 a pop item? Uh uh, that don't fly.

I am ok with most items in the box this month really except for the shampoo, I do color my hair and I do not need any additional help speeding up the process by stripping my color ( the grey comes in quick enough!!!)  THe nail polish I always like, serums and creams are always good.  Not so sure about sheet masks, I'm really having a problem with adapting to those items...  Maybe I will give it a try!

Full spoilers -

Thank you so much for posting all the spoilers.

I am ok with the content. Probably won't use just a bronzer. All the rest is usable, if not by me but my husband.

Kloran as a brand is totally overrated in the States. It costs much less in Europe and it is not the best option for certain types of hair.

I've used Klorane shampoo before and it was ok. I'm interested in seeing how this one is. :)

A week has passed since they charged the card. The box is still in the warehouse. :)

Anybody got anything?

I live in another country so I use a freight forwarder. According to my email notifications, the box has already reached my forwarder in Miami, so I should get it tomorrow or Monday once it reaches to my country and clears Customs.

 

If I were located in the States, then I would have received my box yesterday.

normally mine ships very early but I haven't heard a thing. I get USPS alerts so I should have seen something from them if mine had shipped. Kind of weird.

I was watching their unboxing video today, and there were comments below it asking about when it will ship.  Someone said they called and were told they were still waiting on one product from France (guessing the Klorane).  And also shipping times were off b/c of Memorial Day holiday.   I was wondering what was up, since I usually get mine the first week or the month.

And, for the SECOND time this month, after calling and being ASSURED this was not going to happen, my card was charged.

 

Anyone at all surprised?

Can you go online yourself and cancel your card, then deactivate the account.

I've been getting this box since the very first one under beauty bar.  I like it but ever since I started getting lash extensions, I don't really feel like I need makeup.  I end up giving most of the stuff away but I've still been subscribing because I swear the box of a lifetime will be the month I finally cancel.  

 

Well I just got an email from Beauty Bar saying they are no longer processing my subscription and I will have to sign up at Allure now.  I figure it is a sign from the universe that I should just let it go. Did anyone else get this email (or have you in the past)?  Can I just not sign up on Allure and be done or did anyone keep getting charged after that email?

Doing that with Allure deactivates the gift sub my husband has already paid for.  I keep being reassured that my gift sub is active, but it keeps flipping to inactive as soon as the card gets denied. If I didn't have a transaction alert still active on that account, I wouldn't even know what was happening, only that my box didn't show up and my account was in a deactivated status when I went to see why.

Cancelling the card has already happened. I have changed the card info several times, and I swear, I have no idea why it keeps coming back to the ONE card. I suspect that they are trying the others, but since they are prepaid without transaction alerts, I am not aware of those attempted charges like I am with this account. 

It is the weirdest and worst mess of any of the subscription services I have ever encountered.

My personal advice at this point would be only buy gift subs on prepaid card and never have a monthly billing with them, since cancelling the card seems to be the only way they stop billing it, and then, it's still being billed, but the charges are being declined, deactivating the account!

I was supposedly charged last month for the June box. I sure hope that means I'm getting a June box and don't have to hound a customer service rep for tracking info.

Got the box. I have a nail polish in Katie and the mask is coconut with orange. Eye serum is 7 ml but I suppose the content will be less than that. Apart from the bronzer, I am satisfied with the content. :)

My box was delivered today, can't wait to see which Julep color I got.  Really any of the Julep colors will work.  My mail lady hates me!!!!  I will have to remember her at Christmas, but I look at as job security for her!

I did a live chat with CS and they said my box was at the warehouse and they were delayed with Memorial Day and waiting for products from France and blah blah blah. Fingers crossed. 

 

Sample society was one of my favorite subs, Allure has quickly become one of my lesser favorites.

    • I am putting more emphasis on the undereye area. I'm 35 and my skin needs more moisturizing. Twice a day I apply eye serum under eyes, and I never miss this ritual as after several weeks of continuous use I see amazing results: moisturized skin and absolutely no puffiness under eyes. I am using this one from Verneso https://www.amazon.com/s?k=eye+cream&hidden-keywords=B07PPW6J7M&ref=nb_sb_noss_1 Many undereye serums dry out the undereye area and this results in fine lines and wrinkles. Verneso bee venom eye serum contains peptides, vitamins A and E as well as Shea Butter which rejuvenate, tighten and smoothen the undereye area. For me it's the best undereye serum, and I will definetly buy one more bottle during this Amazon Prime Day.
